1/1 Photo of Healthy but Tasty Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
My sister is forever asking for "desserts that are healthy but don't taste like it." I tried this one and she couldn't believe how healthy they were because they tasted so good. If you want to make it healthier, substitute dried cranberries or raisins for teh chocolate chips. Splenda can be substituted for the white sugar.
